Horse riding on the 1600 acre property is the most popular attraction, with over 60 gentle mannered horses to choose from, all ages and levels of experience are well catered for. The rides are over pastures & bush land where you can enjoy the cattle and perhaps also the wildlife.
Then there is water skiing & tube riding on the resorts own 17 acre lake. All of these activities are great fun and very rewarding.
